Velahavle


The story of the Velahavle began when the boys from the same street in Sarajevo\\\'s Ciglane met to play together. First lineup were Armin Hujić (guitars), Džanan Hujić (drums, recruited because he was Armin\\\'s brother and had really nice mustaches), Rizvan Mehmedbašić (Synths) and Samir Hodović (vocal), later to be joined by Edvin Kovacevic (bass), MC Kara (first as MC and after DJ) and Nedim Ilijazovic who replaced Armin Hujić on guitars.

The story of the Velahavle began when the boys from the same street in Sarajevo\\\'s Ciglane met to play together. First lineup were Armin Hujić (guitars), Džanan Hujić (drums, recruited because he was Armin\\\'s brother and had really nice mustaches), Rizvan Mehmedbašić (Synths) and Samir Hodović (vocal), later to be joined by Edvin Kovacevic (bass), MC Kara (first as MC and after DJ) and Nedim Ilijazovic who replaced Armin Hujić on guitars. Velahavle performed across the country and Europe, and released two albums - Reconnect (2005) and What About Now (2012), with moody sound that actually reflects influences of genres that the band members love, and that has always been difficult to classify into a single category. Generally, their sound can be best described as a fusion of different genres: in the beginning it was a post-punk, early Bristol trip-hop, and later drum\\\'n\\\'bass, but lately there are admixtures of synth pop of the 80s, first time introduced on \\\"What about now\\\".

Major influence on their art had Kemal Okan, producer of the album \\\"Reconnect\\\". Work on the first album Reconnect was marked by two very fortunate events. Kemal Okan, the producer of the album \\\"Reconnect\\\", played in Sarajevo in 2003. He was approached by Samir Hodović, who knocked on the door of his hotel room and gave him a demo tape, wanting to hear his opinion on the material.

Kemal Okan was impressed with tracks, and took upon himself the role of a producer for whole album. Another fortunate event happened during the Reconnect recording sessions, when band members met Ralitsa Kashova, Bulgarian singer, who performed on the song Prituri se planinata, which was first very successful single from the Album. Reconnect has been recorded in Pavarotti Music Center in Mostar, and produced in Studio 5 in Paris, France and Cryptic Audio in Glasgow, Scotland, and finally released in November 2005. The process of making their second album began in late 2009 and lasted three years.

Meanwhile, Kemal Okan quit producing music for private reasons, but Velahavle found an excellent producer in Bosnia-Herzegovina - it is Billain, a young Sarajevo DJ and producer. The new album, What About Now, was released in December 2012 Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
